Head of Governance and Company Secretary
I am a qualified Governance professional with extensive experience, most recently as Clerk to the Corporation of a large Further Education College. As the legal and governance advisor to the Board my role focussed on ensuring that governance and the conduct of the Board was effective, efficient and compliant. I played a key role in their merger with another large college which included the development of a new and appropriate governance structure for the merged organisation.
After graduating with a Law Degree, I worked for an Executive Search Consultancy for the Legal sector in Manchester. The experience I gained there provided me with a commercial perspective which I have found extremely valuable in the roles I have held within the education sector.
I have a young family, and am passionate about education and the opportunities it provides. I am very excited to have joined Waterton Academy Trust at this pivotal point in time to use my knowledge and expertise to enhance governance further and play a key role in the successful implementation of the new governance structure.
